37 After Nabal became sober the next morning,[a] his wife told him all that had happened.[b] Nabal’s[c] heart failed and he became paralyzed.[d] 38 About ten days later the Lord struck Nabal, and he died.

39 When David heard that Nabal had died, he said, “Blessed be the Lord who has judged the dispute over my insult at the hand of Nabal, and has held back his servant from evil. The Lord has repaid Nabal’s wickedness.”

Then David sent word to Abigail that he would take her as his wife.
